Alameda Canvas is a small family-owned Custom Marine Canvas Fabrication Shop located in Grand Marina on historic Alameda Island, central to San Francisco Bay marine activities. We hand craft durable custom marine fabric products designed to complement your boat and the way you use it.
Since opening in 2003, Alameda Canvas has been a local partner in our community. We are pleased to have assisted many charitable organizations and performed community service to our neighbors.
We are small by choice. You will be talking to the actual people who will be doing your work. We like to discuss what's available for your project, both in materials and fabrication. And we don't want to sell you something you don't want or need.
Our products are in use all over the world. Many of our customers have become valued friends as well. Our goal is simple...to make a significant contribution to the enjoyment, protection, and value of your boat!
We hope you will visit us soon for thoughtfully fabricated canvas products!
